We are delighted to announce the 2021 webinar series of the Bocconi Assembly for Innovation and Cooperation (BAIC), following the success of last year's series.
In the face of geopolitical changes, societal and environmental concerns, shifting industry boundaries, evolving technological ecosystems, increasing uncertainty, and competitive pressures, the aim of the Assembly is to serve as a forum for discussing and exchanging new ideas across disciplines and developing a research agenda on innovation and cooperation. With this series, we aspire to advance this agenda and promote research projects that facilitate our understanding of these two fundamental drivers of economic growth and prosperity.
This year we are pleased to welcome an exceptional line up of panelists and speakers.
We start this series with a panel on "Cooperating in an Era of Divide" on Wednesday, June 9 at 5-6.30pm (Central European Time)/11am-12.30pm (Eastern Time). In this panel, we bring together three prominent scholars whose expertise speaks to different aspects of the tension between our tendency to cooperate and our instinct to polarize:
Facilitated by Giada Di Stefano, the panelists will address questions, such as: What explains the success of collaboration in an era of division? How has this changed compared to traditional cooperation? How can cooperation be sustained when public policy conflicts with personal interest? Where do current theories fail and where do we need new perspectives to better understand the emerging reality of cooperation? How do these dynamics impact the very role of the firm and managers in our society? And finally, is there anything we can do to reverse this tendency towards segregation, separation, and divide?
We hope you can join us for this event. For further information and to register to attend, please visit our website here.
Subsequently, we will host three outstanding speakers who will be sharing their latest ideas and research:
